    Modern Concrete Villa is a lovely modern family home! :) Very stylishy nice exterior design of the home! The architecture is great! Very nice pool patio! The gazebo with bar is lovely! The string lights around the roofing edges are very pretty! Sims will enjoy sitting at the tables there at nighttime having a drink from the bar, and the candles on the table giving out calming light. Very nice furnishing of the interior! The black and white colour scheme is very nice. Very nice living area with the very nice white rug for Sims to enjoy sitting relaxing on the sofa watching tv on the large screen, Very stylish area with the large sculpture hands.

    THamk you @rosemow I was inspired by a real home I saw on a TV show and had to try to build it.

    ...and looking now at my Gallery, it appears that this build, in just a couple of hours, is now my most popular build. I need to do more Modern, apparently.

    'Henry VIII Eatery & Pub'

    So, this was originally built a while back using CC, (Now purged) for my Medieval/Tudor World. It's a multi-level Pub/Restaurant with different foundation heights. The Pub is in the basement and has a 2nd level, that I left empty, if you wanted to put in a dance area. The rest is restaurant seating and kitchen. There are 3 seating areas, one smaller one being a more intimate setting, I hope I fixed everything.. If there are issues, please let me know and I will fix. I had been using it for some time, with no problems.

    Henry VIII Eatery & Pub is a very lovely restaurant and pub! :) Very nice exterior design and the Tuder patterning and windows is very nice! Very nice furnishing and layout of the interior! The pub area in the basement is very nice! It looks great the way the dining tables and chairs have been set up there , and stools counter table along the edge of the room. Sims will enjoy sitting there having a drink from the bar and have fun playing darts and foosball. The ceiling and wall candlelights are pretty! Very nice layout of the three dining areas in the restaurant ! The different type of dining tables and chairs used for each area is very nice. The lamps and candles are very pretty and calming on the table tops.
    Sims will enjoy visiting the venue :)

    Tudor Farmhouse is a lovely family home! :) Very nice exterior design, great curved roofing and the Tuder style wall patterning and brick texture are very nice! Very nice landscaping work! The bridge and wishing well are special touches, and the rock and plants edged river is very nice! Very lovely furnishing of the interior! The colour scheme is calming and warm, and the furnishings are very nice and homely. The layout of the interior is very nice, and the candle lights give a very nice feel to the home.
    It is a very nice home! :)

    Beautiful house with wonderful interior <3<3<3 There's plenty of room and stuff for everyone to stay occupied/busy either having fun or learning skills.
  • TaoronTaoron Posts: 1,974 Member
    Thanks. I'm not completely happy with how it turned out, but I had a family living in there, for some time and it works well. Trying to fill in all of the blanks of all of the CC I lost, so that I could post it, was painful. lol I really wish EA would start looking at the civilian creators and picking up some of their stuff, so that we could have better choices in building materials. There are some amazing creators out there, doing amazing work, to fill in all of the voids, lack of color consistency and other variables that tend to get on my nerves sometimes. That was the house my Vamp family lived in, while they were trying to behave and live with normal folks. The empty room in the basement was the sleeping (coffin) area for my head vampire and his 5 subordinates. Oh the feeding frenzies we had in that room. lol

    Cool wizard's tower :)

    I would have been over the moon happy, if Maxis had kept the color wheel to custom color objects like in TS3!!!! The one thing I absolutely hate in TS4 is the no match, ugly swatches you can do nothing about :s The other fact is the no match doors, windows, fences/gates and stairs/rails in all sizes and swatches... So I feel your pain @Taoron. But the whole CC business is made so messy and hard in TS4 that it isn't worth the trouble, if you plan sharing your stuff in Gallery.
  • TaoronTaoron Posts: 1,974 Member
    Indeed. I never played 3, but I get the gist of a color wheel, and it would go a long way. I'm doing a classic Colinial at the moment and wanted a Bay Window in the dining room. All of the other windows are Colonial casements with black shutters. Bay window? Nope. Blue? Sure. Pink? Oh yeah. Green? Yep. Black....why would anyone want black? LOL It's like the design teams are forbidden to speak to each other. Don't even get me started on stairs, railings, columns, spandrels, corbels....NOTHING MATCHES!!!! You'd almost think that white and white would be the same color, but noooooooooooo......LOL I stop building a lot of times, after I frame the place out and start adding finish work, because of that. It's funny, yet infuriating, at the same time. So, yeah, I do miss my color fixes that are CC. Life was grand and knowing the things I know now, it would be even gooder. But, my mods folder will remain empty. I do enjoy the downloads and happy comments in my Gallery.

    Swamp Wizard’s Tower is a creatively great home especially for the new pack! :) The tower exterior design, balconies and the stone texture walls look great! Very creatively designed swamp area! The murky water and black trees give a great look! Very nice roof covered bridge front entrance! The iron stone gate entrance looks great! Very nice gothic themed furnishing of the interior! The candlelights look great! The grandfather clock is a nice touch.
    Simmers will enjoy having their new pack sims living there :)
